to chew my clothes to high hell. He got a hold my one of my favorite hoodies. He managed to create a huge hole in one of the armpits. I know I can recon it somehow, I'm sure of it. But I was wondering if anybody had any ideas how.

Thanks!

You might have better results trying in the discussion section of the clothing board.

if its just in the armpit, you could cut off the sleeves and add sleeves that coordinate (or not, lol). that way you get to use two old things in one. or just cut off the sleeves and wear it as a hoodie vest.

My rat likes to pull in my clothing and chew it to shreds. Luckily I got my favorite hoodie out just in time. But then noticed that he killed the armpit. Any ideas how I can recon it?










Thanks in advance.

i would say, insert some jersey (maybe the armpit area of a t-shirt you no longer use or that wore out in another place) in a color you like, underneath, and sew it on like reverse applique.  that might give a very interesting result.  you would need to do something to make clear that it was on purpose, though.  like a visible topstitching, or something...

PS: i had a shirt eaten by (wild) mice once and when i found it, i just ironed-on some applique over it.  but that would not be flexible enough for a pit-area.  also the area i had to fix was way smaller.  it's posted somewhere in reconstructed clothes, though.

     I think Nataluna has the right idea but my suggestion was going to be to use some patterned jersey,(perhaps just a worn cotton? table cloth?). It looks like the top is just gray with some writing on the sleeve. Find a color in that's in there that you like? get a yard, and just ,yeah topsitch some gray thread. -Voila!

   But won't they just naw at it again? I think you need to call a descendant of Pavlov.
